Best of 5

One of my favorite Thai dishes is Pad Thai. I have made at LEAST five different Pad Thai recipes, attempting to find one that was similar to the real thing. I have yet to find one... until yesterday. It's not exactly the same, but it was pretty close! So if you love Pad Thai too, you might want to give this recipe a try!

This photo right here is perfect proof of why I will never be a food blogger! Just tell me, how the heck is everyone taking such delicious-looking pictures of their food???
8 oz flat rice noodles, cooked al dente
1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast chopped into bite-sized pieces
2 eggs
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup sliced white onion
1/3 cilantro, chopped
** you can also add peanuts, tofu, or bean sprouts!

1/4 cup ketchup
2 TBSP fish sauce
2 TBSP sugar
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp peanut butter
juice from one lime
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (if you don't like spicy, I suggest less!!)
1 tsp soy sauce

Season chicken with salt and pepper; cook in a large pan over medium head until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a bowl and set aside.

Whisk together sauce ingredients. Crack eggs over preheated pan and allow to fry for a minute or so. Break them up with a spoon and add onions. Add chicken, sauce and noodles. Toss to coat. Add green onions and cilantro.

Note: We didn't have green onions or cilantro, so we left that out. The noodles weren't very saucy so I think next time I am going to make 1 1/2 of the sauce. The sauce is the best part!

If you make this, let me know how close you think it is!
